TV Ted Danson Tells Seth Meyers that he Doesn't Want a "Cheers" Reboot

Why Ted Danson Doesn't Want a "Cheers" Reboot
by Katherine Schaffstall
Sept. 26, 2018



While many shows have been rebooted in recent years, Ted Danson has no interest in bringing back the iconic series "Cheers".

While visiting "Late Night" on Tuesday, the actor said that he has no plans to participate in a "Cheers" reboot. "It'd be a bunch of people in their 70s in a bar going, 'What? What? A horse walked into a what?'" he explained.

"Maybe Cheers, the old age home," Danson said. After the audience cheered at the idea, Danson said, "Donít worry. It won't happen to you."





The actor referred to a joke Seth Meyers made earlier in the episode about many '80s stars becoming bad people, including Bill Cosby. "The reason why Cheers became a top-10 show was because of The Cosby Show," said Danson. "It just elevated everything."

"It was a great show and it's a horrible thing that he did, not my place to vote on that, but the show had other actors and it was an amazing show," he said of "The Cosby Show". "I think it's okay to say that."

Meyers agreed, saying of the show's legacy, "You know, it's not at the top of the list at the price that's been paid by the awful things that he did, but it is strange that this thing now will be forever tarnished."





Meyers also asked Danson about a moment in "The Good Place" season two finale when Danson's character Michael stood behind a bar, a shout out to his "Cheers" character Sam Malone, who was the owner and bartender at the bar Cheers.

Danson admitted that it didn't feel natural to be behind a bar again. "It took me a year in a half of playing Cheers, Sam Malone. My voice changed just now. I'm started to quaver. I'm getting nervous," he said. "I never went to bars."

"Playing Sam Malone was an anathema to me for the longest time," he said. "So going back was- all of a sudden I was full of insecurity and just felt horrible." He added, "If you watch the scene, you'll notice that I would try to remember what I would do. 'I used to wash shot glasses, yeah.'"





Meyers noted that he can't remember any of the characters taking shots on the show.

"I went to bartender school and worked my little butt off to learn how to make drinks and for the first month of shooting I was making Manhattans and Grasshoppers and all sorts of weird drinks," he said. "They didn't give a s-t. They want their jokes said well and on time and they're shooting you above your hand."

"Cheers" to Ted for saying so clearly. In the last year I have also heard Shelley Long say as well that she doesn't want a reboot. They agree with me - you can't go back again and recreate a classic, especially when so much time has passed.

I would, however, love to see Ted and Shelley work together again, their chemistry was magic. When Ted was on CSI, I would have jumped at the chance to see an episode in which Shelley guest-starred. Maybe the writers at "The Good Place" can find a way to have Shelley guest-star and have scenes with Ted. I know it is Kristen Bell's show, but Ted has a large roll in every episode and there must be some kind of character for Shelley to play. I would pay real money to see them together again on that show.
